NFL set to introduce penalty for players who use the N-word during games
How amusing! Blacks are close to the only users of the word. Are dozens of blacks going to be thrown out of the game? And if not, why not?
The NFL is expected to adopt penalties for using the N-word on the field that will be enacted starting this upcoming season.
A proposal currently circulating through the league’s competition committee seeks to impose a 15-yard penalty against the team of a player using the racial slur, with a second utterance resulting in ejection.
‘I will be totally shocked if the competition committee does not uphold us on what we're trying to do,’ Wooten said Saturday to a standing ovation during the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
‘We want this word to be policed from the parking lot to the equipment room to the locker room,’ he continued. ‘Secretaries, PR people, whoever, we want it eliminated completely and want it policed everywhere.’
